Is Vanguard VUSA a subset of Vanguard VHYL?

I created a simple Investment Portfolio for my Wife & was just wondering if VUSA was a subset of VHYL - Anyone know how to find this information out?

No, not a subset. The selection criteria for the companies included in the two funds are quite different. VUSA includes all of the stocks in the S&P 500 list, which includes large US companies selected by a committee at S&P using various criteria to include what they call “leading companies in leading industries”. VHYL includes 1500 stocks from around the world which are chosen for paying above-average dividends. You can see the exact list of what’s included in each fund if you go to Vanguard’s website:
